Play Programs for your Community

Project Sunshine partners with disease-specific nonprofits to provide age-appropriate activities and games to the communities they serve. Our programs are adaptive for children with various developmental and sensory needs. Partner nonprofits organize a regularly scheduled date and time for their constituents while Project Sunshine provides trained and engaging volunteers to facilitate virtual play sessions.

Virtual play for nonprofits


Here To Play

Equipped with arts and crafts activities, volunteers facilitate play sessions with pediatric patients in medical facilities.These activities contain developmentally appropriate materials and instructions, while encouraging self-expression and imagination for the children. In addition to our comprehensive training, volunteers complete hospital-specific clearance processes.

TelePlay Ruby-1


Volunteers deliver a live, interactive play experience over video conference using HIPAA-compliant technology. Teleplay connects isolated children to one another, and is available to any child facing medical challenges, whether at home or at the hospital. Volunteer play developmentally appropriate games and activities, increasing joy and emotional relief.


Sending Sunshine

Volunteers assemble our activity kits to be sent directly to pediatric patients. Project Sunshine activity kits are designed by child life specialists, and developed in partnership with pediatric healthcare experts. These kits contain materials that provide therapeutic value to the emotional and physical healing process.
